Windows 7: Virus remains after formatting

icy,
DiskPart run from the System Repair Disc or from the Win 7 installer pgrm does not boot up Win 7.

Both of those have them run a PE (preexecution environment) from ram. There is not boot to be intercepted.

Nonsense - DISKPART and CLEAN/CLEAN ALL can be accessed from any Windows 7 installation ISO and run during bootup from said ISO, prior to the boot manager being loaded.

Ditto on both responses above. The only way there can be interference is if the bootable disc itself is corrupt. But that could conceivably be the case with any bootable disc. Always consider the source.
